Golden Goddess dress

Description

This golden dress was custom-made for Kate Quick, a very talented young artist, who is performing a Kylie Minogue tribute act. I was inspired by Kylie’s ’’Aphrodite’s’’ world tour, where she wore a dress in a gladiator/ goddess style mix.
The main fabric is a soft sequined fabric, with hand-embellished golden chains and doubled with pure cotton jersey inside.
It took about 6 days to finish it…. and few plasters on my fingers.:))
Thank you for your visit :)

    wow, really cool dress!! I like how the design isn’t quite symmetrical, but it’s perfectly balanced.

      Thank you, Kovu:) I slept about 6 hours each day, but recovered as soon as I gave the to the client. The biggest problem was with cutting the chains, which came on full metres lengths. I didn’t have special instrument for that, so I used a normal scissor.
